"Sobriety – freedom from our addiction – through the teaching and practice of the twelve steps is the sole purpose of this group." Adapted from “As Bill sees it” page 79.
The purpose of this meeting is to help addicts achieve recovery by the studying, discussing, and practicing of the 12 steps as they are laid out in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous.
We share our experience strength and hope with each other that we may solve our common problem and help others recover.
The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop using substances and engaging in addictive behaviors; all members of any 12 Step program are welcome.
We are self-supporting through our own contributions and are not affiliated with any other 12 step program or group. We are not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; do not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorse nor oppose any causes. Our primary purpose is to recover and help others achieve recovery.
It has been our hard-learned experience that other methods did not work with us. Some of us have tried other ways and the results were disastrous until we looked at the basic and simple approach that the Big Book offers.
It has become apparent to us that when we stopped blaming people, places, and things for our problems; decided to take an honest and fearless look at ourselves as the root cause of our addiction, and applied these twelve steps to our lives, that we got better.
